Just days after quietly announcing an east coast tour of Australia, news has arrived that Violent Soho are set to release their new album, Everything Is A-OK, on April 3.
Fans of the Mansfield quartet were met with the news this morning upon attempting to purchase tickets to the upcoming shows, which kick off on Thursday. As seen in footage shared by the group’s record label, I OH YOU!, posters at Oh! Jean Records in Melbourne alerted fans to the news that their new album, titled Everything Is A-OK, would be released on Friday, April 3.
Further proof of this was shared by Oh! Jean a few hours later when they posted a photo on Instagram which featured the record’s cover, and news of an exclusive colour variant available instore.

Produced by Aussie veteran Greg Wales at The Grove Studios, the record’s tracklist later appeared online, confirming that the previously-released singles “Vacation Forever” and “A-OK” would be making an appearance.
Though Violent Soho have been relatively quiet over the last few years following 2016’s chart-topping WACO, they quietly returned with the acoustic “A-OK” last year, which followed on from the appearance of cryptic billboards around the country.
One week later, the group followed this up with the release of “Vacation Forever”, which managed to chart at #69 in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2019.
Although details regarding a wider pre-order and a more extensive Australian tour are likely to be announced within the coming days and weeks, it seems the anxious wait for new music from Violent Soho appears to be nearing its end.
